Only one game separates the Chicago Bears from the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North standings, but experts overwhelmingly like Chicago to take this one on Sunday.

Chicago, at 7-3, is tied for first in the division, but has lost its last two games. The Bears dropped a close one to the Texans on Nov. 11 and were blown out last week in San Francisco.

The Vikings, who are 6-4, are led by running back Adrian Peterson, who has rushed for 1,128 yards and seven touchdowns this season.

Two out of the three experts at Yahoo! Sports are going with the Bears, with Les Carpenter the only one taking the Vikings. Six out of eight from CBS Sports also think Chicago will win the game.

Seven out of the eight analysts at ESPN also like the Bears. Mark Schlereth was the only one to pick the Vikings.

On average, these two teams are pretty similar, with the Bears putting up 24.9 per game and the Vikings averaging 23.8. The game is scheduled for 1 p.m. from Soldier Field.
